10th Anniversary Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foundation Gala

Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 24th, 2013
Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers, NY

The Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foun­da­tion held its 10th Anniver­sary Gala on Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 24, 2013 at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers in New York City.  Hosted by founders Ali and Joe Torre, the event raised $1,360,000 to main­tain and expand our com­pre­hen­sive, in-school pro­gram, Margaret’s Place, both locally and nationally.

More than 500 celebri­ties, sports stars, indus­try lead­ers and fans gath­ered to honor leg­endary broad­caster Bob Costas.  On stage Joe Torre, Tom Ver­ducci, Tim McCarver, Tony LaRussa and Jim Kaat shared fond mem­o­ries of their dear friend, and as well as some laughs along the way.  Talk show host Katie Couric served as Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies of the evening and Grammy Award-winning singer Richard Marx enter­tained the crowd with his clas­sics like “End­less Sum­mer Nights” and “Should’ve Known Better.”

At the event, the foun­da­tion intro­duced its inau­gural Hall of Fame, an esteemed net­work of endur­ing and sig­nif­i­cant part­ners from the last decade.  Inductees included BGC Part­ners Exec­u­tive Man­ag­ing Direc­tor North Amer­ica and Global Head of FX Prod­ucts Daniel LaVec­chia, Find Your Face­Mate Founder Christina Bloom, Kate and Bob Devlin, Good­man Media Inter­na­tional Pres­i­dent and CEO Tom Good­man, Cohn­Reznick LLP Co-CEO Thomas Marino, Flem­ing­ton Car and Truck Coun­try Chair­man Steve Kalafer, Pfizer CFO Frank D’Amelio, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics Amer­ica Pres­i­dent Tim­o­thy Bax­ter, The Starr Foun­da­tion Direc­tor Howard Smith, TBWAChi­at­Day Exec­u­tive Pro­ducer Ozzie Spen­ningsby and Ver­i­zon VP Of Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Torod Neptune.

We would like to extend a heart­felt thank you to the fol­low­ing indi­vid­u­als, foun­da­tions and cor­po­ra­tions that gen­er­ously sup­ported our event and cel­e­brated this mile­stone with us:
